New Delhi, Aug 5, 2017: Congress leader Sharmistha Mukherjee on Saturday blamed the state government of failing to provide security cover to the vice-president Rahul Gandhi.
“This is a premeditated attack. Rahul is a SPG protectee; It is the duty of the state government to ensure his safety. This is a major security breach,” she said while speaking to media.
On friday, Rahul Gandhi faced hostile black-flag waving crowds shouting slogans in favour of Prime Minister during his visit to flood-hit Dhanera town in Gujarat’s Banaskantha district, forcing him to beat a retreat. His car was pelted with stones, shattering some windows.
